2008 Vega Sicilia Unico Ribera del Duero Spain Red

St Barth’s Wine


La Bodega Vega Sicilia is much more than a winery, is a legend, synonymous with prestige, it is the most prized Spanish wines. The story goes back to 1862 when Eloy Lencanda founded the winery in Valbuena de Duero as we know it now. After several owners, who knew how to forge the name of Bodega Vega Sicilia, turning it into a myth. In 1982, the winery was acquired by the Álvarez family. After its fermentation, it goes through what is probably the world's longest aging of red wine, almost 10 years between wood and bottle.

The different stages take place in different types of barrel: American and French wood, new and used 225-liter barrels, 20,000-litre vats, each batch is what determines the type of wood and the time spent in each container after the stage in the wood, it is aged in the bottle to complete a long and complex aging process. It will normally spend 6 years in wood and three in the bottle.

Deep red with blue highlights, the dress impresses by the concentration of color. The power of its nose reveals the intensity of the notes of sour cherry , ripe black fruits and spices .

The palace is bewitched by a mouth large extent, to the meaty texture revealing a delicate complexity fruity aromatic. Very long, the finish ends with magnificent round, gourmet and well-structured tannins.
